The SureGear® Strain Wave Servo Gear boxes are amazing because they extend your SureServo motor gear reductions way out without adding more size or weight.
Traditional Planetary Gearboxes can only tweak the gear ratios so far before they have to add extra stages to jump to the next level of gear reduction. Eventually they become unwieldy because of the extra stages, and less reliable because they have so many moving parts that wear out.
The Strain Wave gear boxes don’t have those limitations. This is a 50 to 1 strain wave; an 80 to 1; a 100 to 1; a 160 to 1 and a 200 to one gear box – yeah
the size of the gearbox doesn’t change when you change gear ratios so if you change your mind later you don’t have to redesign your machine just to change gear the ratio. How cool is that?
Strain Wave gearboxes have ZERO backlash! That’s right – you can go from forward to reverse and don’t have to wait for the gears to catch up like you do with traditional gear boxes – Strain Wave gear boxes are ready to go in either direction at any time instantly.
Resolution and accuracy stay the same over the life of the gearbox – you don’t have to worry about planetary gears slowly wearing out, or getting sloppy and loosing accuracy!
Strain Wave gear boxes have fewer moving parts, so they are inherently more reliability.
Since the gearboxes are permanently lubricated there is no periodic maintenance is required – which saves you machine down time.
While these are designed specifically to fit the SureServo brand of servo motors, they are also available in all the standard NEMA sizes, so you can use them with your favorite Stepper motors.
